Rotterdam : Court dismisses Tariq Ramadan's lawsuit


Tariq Ramadan already announced he will appeal (NL).

Via AP:

A Dutch court has rejected a wrongful dismissal lawsuit brought by prominent Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan, saying the city of Rotterdam had good reasons for ending his contract.

The Swiss-born Ramadan was dismissed from positions at Erasmus University and the city in August 2009 after he hosted a program on Iranian state television.


The court in Rotterdam said Wednesday Ramadan failed to understand the size of the problem and his public support was gone.
